ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Albany Police hope you'll take advantage of their free crime prevention services to protect your property.    

 A-P-D's Crime Prevention Unit officers will inspect your home or business and offer crime fighting suggestions.    

 They say better lighting, locks, and doors will make your property a tougher target for crooks.  So will working with your neighbors.

"Make sure that the community is involved," said Albany Police Corporal Brian Covington.  "And anytime that they notice something that's strange or out of the ordinary, that they make the necessary phone call to the police. So our officers can get out there and investigate."  

 Albany Police want people to call their crime prevention unit before burglars strike.      Call 431-2100 to make an appointment.
